    I've got chance of a clear acrylic case... are they worth bothering with? I'm just not to sure about how they will effect the temps of my system, and dust, and cable management...

    So yea, what are your experiances with them?

    Very similar to that, and a price hasn't been mentioned yet, but i've repaired his pc a few times now and never really wanted anything in return for it, so probably about £20 - £25 maybe, at the most.

    It depends on the fans capabilties unless you intend to mod it, cus that has only 3 80mm fans from what I can see :ohwell:

    Don't do it. I have an acrylic case sitting unused in my closet.

    It is cool for about the first 2 months, then you start to notice the dust build up...and realize that keeping it clean is next to impossible. Not to mention there is no way to clean up cable clutter, no matter how much management you do, I've never seen an acrylic case that didn't look like it was filled with cable clutter!

    5, the only diffrence between that case and the one i could get is the fans on the side are side by side, not one above the other. The fans what are with the case spin around 3500 - 4000 rpm i belive.

    ss for the double post, but is it true that these kinds of cases can build up static electricity?

    i think they're cool (no pun intended) but as people have said the gimmick wears off soon after, and yes, that thing will attract so much dust it's not funny.
